32 stunning photos and a Saweetie vid from FADER FORT

Here’s everything that happened on Day 1, 2018.

March 15, 2018

On Wednesday evening, as the sun set on Day 1 of The FADER FORT 2018, Texas ambassador Bun B took the stage to close out the night. The Trill OG performed hitters from his solo catalog, UGK classics, and memorable guest verses, while the Austin crowd sang along to every word.


Bun B's set was a fitting end to a packed day of incredible moments. Saweetie lit up the stage with unreleased jams, Superorganism brought the noise with an eclectic set, Valee came with his whole crew for an energized performance, and Speedy Ortiz belted new hits and old favorites with a live saxophonist.

The FADER FORT is made possible this year by returning partners Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, vitaminwater zero, along with new FORT partners Pabst Blue Ribbon, Apple Music's Beats 1, New Balance, Smirnoff, SPiN, and Google VR.
